|The trailhead sign|
A beautiful autumn day - sky blue - trees a glowing amber - perfect day for a hike, no?
Early this fall, hubby and I, both retired, made a pact to get ourselves out in our beautiful Adirondacks as much as possible before snowfall - litttle hikes, climbs, walks etc (in addition to my kayaking excursions). Because once winter sets in, I'm not so excited about the out-of-doors. So yesterday we picked the nearby Pilot Knob Ridge Preserve, a climbing trail that would bring us to a gazebo overlooking picturesque Lake George, after a hike of 1.2 miles and an elevation climb of 650' from the trailhead. There was also an option to continue another 1.5 miles to a waterfall after arriving at the gazebo. Sounded perfect for a sunny afternoon!

So here I am at home today, not leaving the house at all, but instead relaxing with a bandaged leg and some bumps and bruises and aches and pains. Hubby is tired and muscle-sore too, and just woke from a nap. I think later I'll make some soup: kale, white beans, and diced tomatoes. Sound good?
